    Maybe speak to your doc about increasing ventelin to every 2 hrs sounds like that's what she really needs when my son gets sick his asthma action plan says give it to him every 2 hrs and I found the nebuliser worked alot better as well. Good luck I had whooping cough when I was 10 and was in hospital for it I was immunised as well hope she improves quick.

    I will try the honey drink. I don't like my chances of getting her to drink it but we will see. She doesn't really like honey. Can't try butter menthols while she is sick - she has a lolly allergy so its too dangerous. But I should do a trial one day when she is better so I know if she can have them in the future.


    Our3boys - nebuliser! I have one in the cupboard. I will ask him in the morning about trying that. Haven't used it in years and he's of the mind that the ventolin+spacer is just as good. He did say he was happy with her breathing and chest etc though, it's just this awful cough. And yep, will do more often if she needs it.

    My DD1 had a 'whooping cough' like virus when she was 3. It was awful and lasted about two weeks and with it it bought a throat infection, a double ear infection, and conjunctivitis. She has never been so sick in her life the poor kid.
    She got tested for whooping cough but it was negative. I hope your DD is feeling better soon.

    OP, maybe try the nebuliser at night.

    I had whooping cough as a child - probably around the same severity as you are describing.

    My Mum said the only thing that helped was putting the nebuliser on me at bed time and I would fall asleep with it on. She said once I was asleep I got a few hours rest, but without the nebuliser I couldn't stabilize the coughing to allow me to go to sleep in the first place.

    It is worth a shot!!

    Hope she's better soon.

    Yes, nebulisers are wonderful! I have asthma and I always find the nebuliser works like magic compared to a puffer and spacer, despite the doctors assuring me the spacer should do the trick.

    Hope you get a better nights sleep tonight.

    Thanks, yeah that's the thing. She's not managing to sleep. Definately work a shot and I will ask for a nebules script in the morning. Just tried the 6 puffs of ventolin via spacer which as per our action plan is mean't to be the equivalent of the nebuliser and see if that helps. Tried some vicks too. No luck with the honey drink but it was worth a try.
